17 original 2015 Holden Astra VXR Review

the Holden Astra Is Back And This Time Around It's Hotter Than Ever Before, If You're Thinking The New Holden Astra VXR Looks Familiar Well You're Right It's Essentially The Same Car As We're Sold Here As An Opel Astra OPC A Couple Of Years Ago Except Now There's Holden Badges All Around It That Means Under The Bonnet Is One Of The Most Potent Four-cylinder 2-liter Turbocharged Engines On The Market It Produces 206 Kilowatts And 400 Newton Meters It Sends Power To The Front Wheels Through A Six-speed Manual Transmission. So, That Means It's A Proper Driver's Car And It Feels Properly Sporty Inside As Well Mainly Because Of These Huge Sports Bucket Seats With Excellent Adjustment How Good Is The Adjustment Well They Offer Pneumatic Bolsters Here And Here Which Means It Can Hunker You In As Much As You Feel Comfortable With The Front Seats Flip Forward To Allow Reasonably Easy Access To The Rear Where There's Three Positions Which Are Best Left For Small People Much Like Most Regular H Backs There's A Color Media Screen With Sat-nav, But There's No Reversing Camera Instead Astra VXR Comes With Reverse Sensors As Standard A Camera Would Be Handy Because It's Kind Of Hard To See Out Of When You Are Trying To Reverse And That Media System Isn't The Most High-tech Or The Most Modern Thing To Use Either There's Lots Of, Buttons And It Can Be Confusing That Said The Sporty Touches Around The Cabin Like VXR Embossing And VXR Badges On The Gear Knob And On The Steering Wheel Add To That Sportiness.

So, Enough About The Interior Let's See What It's Like On The Road We Showed You What Was Under The Bonnet And It Is A Big Engine For A Small Car Thankfully Though It Knows How To Put Its Power Down To The Ground Even On Wet Surfaces Like We're On Today It Does Manage To Push The Power To The Front Wheels Adequately And With Plenty Of Punch The 6-speed Manual Is A Fairly Slick Shifting Thing Maybe The Throws A Little Bit Longer Than You Might Expect From A Sporty Car, But Generally It's Nice To Use A Clutch Pedal Is Light And Has A Nice Action As Well Stopping Is As Important As Going In A Hot Hatch And Thankfully The Big Breaks Behind The 20-inch Wheels On The VXR Do An Excellent Job There's A Trick Up The Sleeve Of The VXR They Hit The Sport, Button The Engine Gets A Little Bit More Aggressive The Steering Stiffens Up And. So, Does The Ride Certainly Makes It Feel A Lot More Tied Down The Steering Is Fairly Good As Well You Can Really Feel What The Front Wheels Are Doing Through The Wheel Which Is Excellent Considering It Is Front-wheel Drive And You Do Notice Just A Touch Of Torque Steer Where When You're Accelerating The Wheel Will Move Around A Little Bit Tugging From Side To Side, But It's Fairly Well Isolated On The Whole The Best Bit There's An Even More Manic Mode The XR And You See The Dials Light Up Red In Front Of You As, If They're Willing You On To Push It Even Harder Because It's Got Plenty To Give Steering Weights Up Even More It's Really Direct Quite Sharp And While The Suspension Does Firm Up - It's Never Uncomfortable It's Really Quite Compliant And The Balance That It Offers Through The Corners Is Exceptional Boy Its Quick Really Quick Holden Claims It'll Do Nought To 100 In About Six Seconds Flat And. I've Got No Reason To Doubt That, But The Most Impressive Thing About It Is The Way It Carries Speed Through Corners Even Horrible Slippery Ones Like This Yeah Bit Of Understeer There It's More To Do With The Tires Than The Chassis Itself Quite An Impressive Thing No Doubt About That Holden's Hot Hatches In The Game.

So, The Holden Astra VXR It Marks An Important Moment For The Brand In Australia Not Just The Re-entry Of The Astra Badge, But Also The Entry Into The Popular Hot Hatch Segment Enough Chat. I'm Going For A Drive You.
